Antimicrobial resistance: 5 years after AMR national plan came out, only 3 states have one of their own

  28 November 2022

The Global Action Plan on Anti Microbial Resistance (GAP AMR) was declared by World Health Organization (WHO) in 2015. India launched its National Action Plan on AMR (NAP AMR) in 2017.

Health being a matter of individual states, all Indian states and Union Territories (UT) were advised to develop their respective State Action Plans (SAP) within the framework of NAP AMR. Time and again, it has been advocated to develop the AMR action plans holistically with the concept of One Health.

After five years of NAP AMR, it is time to look back and assess it and the various SAPs through the lens of One Health.
